  Brooklyn Art Song Society is proud to announce its second commissioned work, Brooklyn-based composer Michael Rose's Rilke Songbook.   Michael Rose is an esteemed composer known for his intellectual rigor and poignant lyricism.  Rainer Maria Rilke is one of the greatest German poets, but his poetry is notoriously difficult to successfully set to music.  Mr. Rose's songbook is therefor a virtuosic undertaking, one he has accomplished with unqualified success.  A noted interpreter of contemporary music makes his BASS debut in this concert: pianist Blair McMillen (Da Capo Chamber Players). They are joined by mezzo-soprano Kate Maroney,  pianist Michael Brofman (artistic director) and baritone Kyle Oliver.  Be sure not to miss this world premiere of an important contribution to modern art song.  

About Brooklyn Art Song Society:
  Hailed by the New York Times as "ambitious" and "a company well worth watching," the Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its fourth season of first-rate music making in the fall of 2013. Dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music, BASS presents programs of epic scope yet intimate at the same time. Past highlights have included performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives, Henri Duparc, a festival of works from Franz Schubert's last year and an ongoing project to present the complete lieder of Hugo Wolf. Committed to keeping art song relevant in our time BASS has collaborated closely with important living composers such as Tom Cipullo, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, and Yehudi Wyner, and has commissioned works from Brooklyn-based composers Marie Incontrera and Michael Rose.  The 2013-14 season will feature concerts in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston and South Bend, Indiana of works by Johannes Brahms, Lowell Liebermann, Michael Rose, Clara and Robert Schumann, and Hugo Wolf featuring some of the worlds finest young singers including sopranos Martha Guth and Laura Strickling, mezzo soprano Wallis Giunta, tenor Dominic Armstrong, baritones John Brancy and Michael Kelly, pianists Spencer Myer and Erika Switzer, and many, many more.  For more information visit: www.brooklynartsongsociety.org
